This year, we are prepared to actually plant our raised garden.  Last year we had every intent of starting it.  We took one close step- purchasing the materials! Unfortunately, we did not begin growing.  This year however we’re committed because we took a beginners gardening class.  It is a program supported by Penn State which offers classes and support for those looking to grow their own food or start a garden.  In the first class, we learned about the basics and pointers on getting started.

You may remember I posted a picture of my potted parsley which you may be happy to learn is still alive! To celebrate this achievement ,I bought my dear Parsley a companion: Mr. Mint! Here is a pic of my new herb plant. This is only the beginning and I cannot wait until we start growing our own food! This fresh mint will make many mojitos this summer…
